Resolved to Sew 2012

Some of you might remember that I got a sewing machine on my Birthday but sadly i haven't or dared yet to use it often coz i don't know much about sewing and/or scared that i might break it :P

But i've made a New Year's resolution that i'm going to learn how to sew properly and will do alot of sewing in 2012, I've pinned a few Sewing Projects on my Pinterest that I want to do this year and hopefully before the end of this year, i can make all of them and know how to sew. .

I want to make my own phone case, another try in making bunting, cushion cover, patchwork/quilt cover, another cute apron, a bag, curtain and even going to try to make a simple dress! all i need to do now is to gather all the materials and gather my optimism and the will to make them! wish me luck!

VeryBerryHandmade has a fabulous competition going on right now. Blog about your 2012 resolutions linking back to her "Resolutions to Sew 2012" post, leave a comment on her post to say you have done so and stand a chance of winning one of many fabulous fabric prizes.

I've entered, pop over if you want to join!


  1. I got my sewing machine last year and ive still not built up enough courage to make much im desperate to make my daughter a patchwork quilt but i really need more practice lol x
    look foward to seeing your creations throughout the year x

  2. Love the sewing projects you have on your pinterest! I don't have much sewing skills. I have made some cafe curtains though (those are pretty easy to make) and some outdoor bunting (again those are super easy to whip up). I haven't been brave enough (yet) to tackle making a purse or anything like that..would love to be able to though. I guess practice makes perfect...I just need lots and lots of practice :P
    Happy Sewing, do share anything you end up making :)

  3. Hi Susan, you are so uber talented that I have no doubt that you'll master it. Start off with something easy - bunting or a cushion cover. You'll be fine! xx

  4. I think the fact that you have made a commitment to learn to sew is awesome! I love to sew, I am a fabric junkie! If you have any questions I would be more than happy to help if I can! I enjoy visiting your blog! have a good day!

  5. You have so many wonderful projects planned! You will get used to the sewing machine (and it will get used to you too) I am always a little scared when I haven’t used one for while, I never start sewing on my best fabric until I have got the hang of using it, but just remember everything you make is an experiment and you will just get better and better :) xxx

  6. Hello, dear Susan..

    I know you will be able to accomplish your projects. I'm happy to hear you will be putting your sewing machine to good use. You will make it a very happy machine. It will be 'singing' happily with each stitch.

    I wish I was able to stay on the computer longer, but I am in the process of healing some worn out tendons in my arm. Seems my arm is rebelling from all the mouse clicking. So, ta-ta for now. Will check your blog again soon.
